Poverty is the single greatest threat to children’s well-being according to the National Center for Children in Poverty. Hunger and poverty go
hand-in-hand and both are a real problem here in Southwest Louisiana.
thank you to our 2017 partners!
As a result of our generous donors and volunteers, we were able to send a grand total of 5,200 Weekend Food Packs to the Calcaiseu Parish Police Jury and City of Lake Charles' Summer
Feeding Program sites!

The Food Drive
In an effort to work together to end child hunger, United Way of Southwest Louisiana partners with the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury and City of Lake Charles Summer Feeding Programs by
creating Weekend Food Packs so children in the programs have healthy and easy-to-eat foods over the weekend. United Way of Southwest Louisiana works with local companies, organizations
and groups to collect food for Weekend Food Packs.
